Mazda6 vs Hyundai Sonata
+Sporty looking (with sport package)
+BIG discounts on 2005's
-Poor 4 cyl acceleration
-Questionable cloth quality
-Dash kind of tacky on 2005 models
If I had kids I would definitely go for the Sonata, but we don't plan on having kids for a few years so do I really want a generic looking car? Don't get me wrong, the Sonata is fairly good looking, but it isn't exactly sporty (the Mazda6 is). But at the same time, even though I can get up to 3500 off a Mazda6 (on top of the S-plan), I can still get a V6 Sonata for the same price as the 4 banger Mazda6 (sports trim). And I am not impressed with the acceleration of the 4 cyl Mazda6 2005.
I'd probably take the 2006 Mazda6 (improved interior and torque) over the Sonata if the price was the same, but not with the current price differences.
PS. Looking to buy withing the next month and want to stay below 20k OTD.
